Evolve Board Training
The Evolve Board Training was a virtual training two-part series designed to shift perspectives and instill new approaches to nonprofit board leadership.
Evolve existed as we noticed a need for board training rooted in anti-oppression and collective justice values. Often the dynamics between volunteer-led boards and organizational staff are steeped in power imbalances and archaic structures. In part, this is due to the fact that statistically, boards are very white, even those of organizations that primarily serve communities of color. We worked to provide individuals with the confidence and resources to dismantle and reimagine these dynamics.
- Training 1: “Dismantling Structures” — focused on reimagining board power dynamics, disrupting the nonprofit industrial complex, and providing resources and knowledge for historically underrepresented communities to join boards that align with their values and skills.
- Training 2: “Practicing Community-Centric Fundraising” — focused on board fund development rooted in values of community-centric fundraising and decentering funders’ needs.
